Perhaps it is time to get rid of the Coupe des Nations and have it replaced by a more coherent set of .2U races throughout the season that National, Regional and Conti/Devo teams can all ride in.
Hear, hear!

The Nations Cup (on U23 level at least) has shrunk to no more than half a dozen races anyway; instead of reducing a Nations Cup to the absurdity of being contested by non-national teams, they should get rid of it altogether and establish a season-long U23 ranking based only on .2U races. The Tour de l'Avenir or Baby Giro could even be ranked as 2.1U if the UCI finds its long-lost never-had flexibility.

It would just make much more sense ...
... so we know for sure it'll never happen. :fp
